Hello From Southern Indiana

I just recently started my Portable Sawmill & Molding business here in Southern Indiana (a longtime dream of mine) after retiring from the Army. I'm really enjoying all the GREAT people I get the privilege to interact with (one referred me to this site). I’m very new to forums but look forward to participating in the sharing of information, like I’ve seen on this site. If you guys get time or are bored one day please check out my website www.bonesteelmillandmolding.com . I administer my own site (try) and would welcome any suggestions to make it better.

Take care,
Roger

Congrats on your retirement, and welcome to the sight! I'm in the Army also, and stationed @ Fort Knox, although I don't think they will be getting their 20 out of me.....

Welcome Roger !! First off, THANK YOU for your service to our country! In looking at your website I see you bought a Lucas mill. How do you like it? What made you choose that type when you started your business? I know very little about milling other than what I have read here and on an Australian Woodworking forum. They seem to be wildly popular in Australia. Just wondering what the advantage of the Lucas style is over a bandsaw mill. In any case, welcome again!

John,

Thank you. I chose the lucas mill for many reason. The only two disadvantages I have found are: 1) it is time consuming to cut wider than 8". 2) It has a slightly larger kerf than a band mill.

I like:
1) it takes me less than 3 min to sharpen
2) I've I only own 4 blades and 2 have never been used
3) It is easy to get a large percentage of 1/4 sawn
4) portability and set up. I can take it anywhere I can take my truck because it all fits into the back and a ladder rack.
5) it is very accuarate

I'm very happy with the mill.
